Cirencester College student, Jack Stuart, who suffered serious illness celebrates brilliant A-level results with best friend Matt Walter
A CIRENCESTER College student whose studies were blighted by a serious illness has defied the odds and come out with some of the college’s top grades.
Jack Stuart, 19, who suffered from chronic fatigue syndrome, was celebrating after learning he had achieved an A* in economics and world development and grade A in politics and 3D design.
He said: “I’m absolutely over the moon. I really can’t believe I got the grades.
“I did a huge amount of work because my illness effected me massively. I missed all my GCSEs and could only take two A-levels in my first year here.”
Jack, who attended Sir William Romney school before arriving at Cirencester, celebrated his good news with best friend Matt Walter who also bagged two A grades in economics and politics as well as getting an A* in business studies and general studies.
He said: “I'm delighted with my results. I did so much work for them, the months of May and June didn’t really exist for me but it’s all been worth it.”
This is the ninth year that Cirencester College students have achieved over a 99 per cent pass rate.
The college also saw 39 of its subjects achieve 100 per cent pass rates.
Kim Clifford, principal of the college, said: “I would like to congratulate our fantastic students and recognise the inspirational and supportive teaching from our staff.
“Thanks to these results, which include an amazing 100 A* grades at A-level, our students are gaining places on highly competitive universities including Oxford, Cambridge, Durham and Bristol.”
